Matt Adams Injury: Updates on Cardinals 1B’s Quadricep and Return

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams left in the fifth inning of Tuesday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks after suffering a right quadricep injury. Continue for updates. Adams Hurts Quad Tuesday, May 26 The Cardinals are currently categorizing Adams' injury as a quad strain. He came up limping when rounding first on a fifth-inning double, and he was replaced by Mark Reynolds, who pinch ran and took over at first base.  Jennifer Langosch of MLB.com reported that Mike Matheny has "a high level of concern" and to expect a player move. In his third full MLB season, Adams is off to a rocky start. He's hitting .241/.280/.369 with four home runs and 20 RBI, putting him on pace to set career lows in nearly every category. The lumbering first baseman had, however, seemingly been breaking out of his slump. Tuesday's double was his third extra-base hit in as many days. The Cardinals will likely pluck ...


Alberto Callaspo to Dodgers, Juan Uribe to Braves in Reported 6-Player Trade

The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t wait until the trade deadline to make a notable move during the 2015 season. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports shared the details: Third baseman Juan Uribe is a 36-year-old veteran who boasted a .247 batting average and one home run entering play Tuesday for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Third baseman Alberto Callaspo is a cheaper option (he is making $3 million compared to Uribe’s $6.5 million), but he was only hitting .206 entering play Tuesday with a lackluster .293 on-base percentage. The Atlanta Braves are in third place in the National League East, but sit well within striking distance early in the season. Still, it’s the National League West-leading Dodgers that have World Series expectations in 2015 and will ultimately draw the most headlines with any move. While Uribe helped the Dodgers win the division last season with impressive defense at the hot corner and a ...

Chris Colabello Turning into a Reliable Contributor for Toronto Blue Jays

May hasn’t been a great month for the Toronto Blue Jays, but one of the bright spots for the team has been the recent play of outfielder Chris Colabello. Claimed on waivers by the Blue Jays this past offseason, the 31-year-old Colabello was assigned to Triple-A Buffalo to open the 2015 season. He proceeded to hit .337 with five home runs and 18 RBI in April and won the International League Player of the Month award to earn a call-up to the major leagues.

Nationals’ Bryce Harper Believes Angels’ Mike Trout Is Best Player in MLB

At the age of 22, Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper is the early favorite to win the 2015 National League Most Valuable Player award. However, he's not ready to say that he is the best player on the planet. One could argue that Harper has in fact been the best player in baseball this season. Through his first 45 games, the Nationals star has a slash line of .333/.471/.727 and has 16 home runs and 41 RBI. Harper leads the NL in home runs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging and OPS.

Haper's not ready to say that—because there's this guy named Mike Trout. Harper and Trout will forever be linked together in baseball history because they both had sensational ...
